Call for Volunteers Now Open!

Want to volunteer at the Festival this year? Come join the team that gets this up in the air and makes it run…quite a miraculous thing to be a part of really. Just email Yoko at
folkfestvolunteer@gmail.com fill out her form and you’ll be on your way to life inside the festival!

It’s how our Artistic Director got started at the festival, volunteering in the food truck the festival ran, when she was 15. For anyone who hasn’t volunteered but has thought about it, we’d encourage you to give it a try.
